LM Netters,

I am looking for opinions about the idea of commercialization of
children/young adult books.  Any thoughts about books being made into
movies, characters into stuffed animals/action figures, or spin offs
(sequel books and movies) are greatly appreciated.  I am also hoping to
find examples of good and bad adaptations of books into other formats.  I
am writing a paper about the pros and cons of this phenomenon and would
like some "real world" ideas from those "in the trenches" to compare and
contrast with the business perspective I have been researching.  I have my
opinions but I want to gather more.  Thanks for your time.
